Thanks for the reminder   sexyandfamous.

I had totally forgotten about Plantains and Bananas.

I like the 'Natural' things, but often gets stuck in a rut, doing the 'same old same ole'.    Looking for the quick fixes.

So I did my peel today. 45% on The Arms and Decollete' for 6mins, and face at 25-30 % for 4 mins .

No stinging or adverse feelings.

Maybe I should skip RA for another couple weeks and do LA peel weekly for a month

I may reconsider that tomorrow

My Kojic Acid soap is finally here. Didn't realize it was coming from the Philippines.

Finally seeing the stubborn permatan on the outer aspects of my face, along the hairline, breaking up.
It's only taken about 7 months

Used my KS body soap for approx. 3 mins today, after going a few months
without it.

Will do it again tomorrow morning, but I will leave it on for about 15-30 minutes followed by my LA lotion.

It is so easy to fall out of a routine

Twice today I applied KS soap to my face and arms for about 3-5 mins (did not really check) then used LA lotion.

It all seem so foreign because it's been so long.

It's getting warmer, so Sun Protection es muy importante.

Soaping my face and arms with KS for about 25-50 mins.
Even though I apply sun block when I go out, they are still the most exposed areas.

Extra precaution

I still get a bit anxious the day before doing LA face peel.

It is hard to hide or cover up if something goes wrong.

Face peel tomorrow

Finally got around to doing my Face and Arm peel.

Approx 40% LA.   4:40 mins on the arms,   and a little over 3 mins on my face, same strength.

My neck was not invited to this shindig for obvious reasons

There was no burning or discomfort on my face before neutralizing, but experiencing a little burning over rt eyebrow now that it's over

Handy dandy Hydrocortisone Cream to the rescue.

Woke up with a reddish hue above my Rt eyebrow.   It does not appear that it will turn into a 'thing'.

Arms and Elbows continue to improve, but way too slow for my tolerance.

Thinking to doing the lower body today, but at this point, it's just a thought

I have my lazy days

Enough time has passed since face peel for me to be assured there are no adverse effects.

Still have not peeled lower body yet
